Lucas Kane, Faces Dice, and Profundum!
Well boy! It's been a big day for Deep Madness! Let's take a look at what's been accomplished!
Oh, but first, if you're new to Deep Madness it might help you to see more reviews. Board Game Quest (and DM backer Richard Pain) just posted a review of Deep Madness, so if you're interested in reading it, you can find it at https://www.boardgamequest.com/wp-content/cache/wp-rocket/www.boardgamequest.com/deep-madness-review/index-https.html_gzip.
Also, we were featured on Beasts of War's Weekender show! It's late in the video so we cut right to it in the link. You can watch the segment at the link below.
(They should have a playthrough video coming soon, too, for those who are interested.)
There's also a new playthrough video from Rolling Solo, in which Adam takes us through scenario two of Deep Madness.
LUCAS AND THE ANOTHER DAWN DICE
On to the stretch goals!
Today we not only hit a funding stretch goal, but a backer number stretch goal as well!
Lucas Kane has officially been unlocked, meaning he'll be riding along with every copy of the novel Deep Madness: Shattered Seas, as well as starring in the accompanying scenario that we unlocked earlier in the campaign.
What's more, we have officially completed every one of the revealed stretch goals based on backer number! This means that we have unlocked the really perty Another Dawn dice! These nine dice will be included in every copy of The Faces of the Sphere expansion.
We'll have more about Lucas Kane in the next day or two, along with the next snippet from the book. But first, I'm pretty sure we know exactly what you want to hear about: Profundum.
Over the last few days we've been hinting that something was coming. And now we're just about ready to reveal it. Let's take a look.
Many of you have asked for a storage solution for Deep Madness, particularly our returning backers. Well, for that we are pleased to announce Monstrum Profundum. Monstrum is Latin for a monstrosity, a portent, an oddity. It also can mean simply monster. Profundum, meanwhile, means the deep. A chasm. Or the abyss. Perhaps together you could take them to mean monsters of the depths. And, together, they make up the storage solution that we have been hinting at and that backers have been asking for since the start of this campaign.
Both boxes will have the same footprint, but Monstrum will be significantly deeper. (Ironically.) That's because Monstrum will contain places for every miniature across Deep Madness and all of its expansions, while Profundum will have hold every tile, card, token, marker, standee, die, and more that Deep Madness can throw at it. Profundum will furthermore have compartments to store the various components in, keeping them separate and organized, while also leaving room for sleeved cards.
We're still waiting on the render for Monstrum, so for now we'll turn our attention solely to Profundum. Profundum is 435mm x 323mm x 118mm (or 17.16" x 12.72" x 4.64" if you prefer inches). It has a very simple, elegant design on the outside, and will contain three different layers of blisters to store everything on the inside. It will also be included in your pledge for free.
You heard that right: Profundum is one of our next stretch goals! When we reach $666,666 and also get 6,666 backers, we will unlock Profundum for everyone who has pledged at the Deeper Terrors, Investigator, or All-In pledge levels. For those who don't want to move up to one of these pledge levels (or if you want more than one of them), then Profundum will also be available as an add-on. We're still working out the final price as we solidify how much it will cost to make, but it will probably be between $25-$35. (Sorry for the wide range there, but there's still several factors we need to work out, and these boxes are not cheap!)
For those who also want Monstrum, it will be available strictly as an add-on. This is because Monstrum is going to be even more expensive to make (as well as larger), so we just aren’t able to balance it out financially. (Plus, some people might be content displaying their miniatures in-between play sessions or have other storage solutions, and so won't have need of this box.) Once again, we're still working out the final cost.
Now, we also want to stress that Profundum is NOT the next stretch goal. We will have more goals in-between. But we wanted to show you a little bit more of what's coming and get you excited for the future. We will also have more info on Monstrum Profundum in the coming days, such as when we get our samples in our hands. (Or the render for Monstrum.) But, in the meantime, consider this your first official look at the future of Deep Madness storage.
We'll talk to you again tomorrow, guys, with lots more fun and exciting stuff! (I'd also like to say thank you to everyone who joined me on the live stream today! I had a great time hanging out with all of you! We have tentatively scheduled another one for next Tuesday at 2pm PST, so mark your calendars!) Have a great day, and we'll talk to you again soon!
